Ummah Films Blog - 1 year later
Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,Ummah Films is comprised of a few individuals who are trying to make films for Muslims. We often times don’t carry the same ideas nor do we agree upon various issues but our overall goal of making films for Muslims is the same. Thus if I or anyone else working on an Ummah Films project makes a statement, or puts up a post on the blog, it doesn’t reflect the opinion or the view of rest of those involved with Ummah Films.
The Reminder videos, which many of you are familiar with, started off as just an experiment. I wrote, filmed, and edited these videos so I could practice filmmaking so when we were ready to make films, I would have a little bit of experience under my belt so I would be able to contribute to future Ummah Films projects. Once I noticed that a large number of people were watching, I decided to continue making the Reminder videos, until we were ready to work on a film.
Just so that no one is deceived, we are amateur filmmakers with little or no experience with making films. Although the Ummah Films name has gained some popularity, in reality we are just a few newbies who are trying to learn the craft of film making and we hope that these short films will help each of us gain experience.
Just like our personalities are very different, so is our methods of putting together the different films. We hope that is this not only a learning experience for us, but for those who reading these side blogs as well. I hope keeping a track record will be a good way to inspire others because if we (people who starting off with basically no experience or equipment) can do it, anyone can do it InshAllah.
